Message from Kim Stradley

Hello Big Sandy Wildcats!

My name is Kim Stradley and I am so excited to introduce myself as the Junior High Principal for the new school year.  This is my 20th year in education and my 6th year in Big Sandy ISD.  In my career, I have been a math teacher, assistant principals at both a middle school and a high school, a high school principal (here in Big Sandy) and I also have held a district administrator position working with Curriculum  and Federal Programs.  I have been married 30 years to my husband, Andrew, and have three children.  This past February I became a grandmother and yes, it is as great as everyone said it would be!  In our spare time, my husband and I own and operate a small restaurant where we get to meet some of the great people from the East Texas area.

I can’t say enough about how excited I am about this year.  I am looking forward to working with the students on this campus as well as partnering with parents so that each child achieves their greatest potential.  I will spend a lot of time with your children, getting to know their personalities, learning styles, strengths and weaknesses.  I will work diligently to ensure that your child receives the best education that BSISD has to offer and will lead the way to fulfill our district’s mission statement of “Big Sandy ISD… where KIDS come first”.

We have been working diligently this summer to prepare for this upcoming school year and can’t wait to share the excitement with you. I look forward to creating great relationships with students, parents and the community as we mold the greatest gifts that we can be given, the students of Big Sandy.

Please watch the website for useful, up to date information and never hesitate to contact my office if I can be of any assistance to you.
